Minor First Martians App bug

We have encountered a small bug while working on the First Martians companion app. While setting up the Landing mission, there should be a text prompt asking you to put randomly four spare parts on the map – two in the first Ring, and two in the second Ring.

We are working on the update to fix that problem – for now, please remember to add those parts during the set-up.

It will get fixed asap. Totally my bad. As for the second part — it is interesting. Dave states that they are not well ...

Welcome to PORTAL GAMES

We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
